She was born in Sayre, PA on July 29, 1945, the daughter of the late Charles E. and Reva (Clinton) Peppard.


Mary loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Following her daughter’s death, she was instrumental in raising and keeping her grandchildren together.

She is predeceased by her son Danny Peppard, daughter Gina Wasielewski, great-granddaughter, Marley Shaughnessy, brothers Kenneth and Raymond Peppard, sisters Gladys Young, Leona Brown, Clara Simons, and Betty Vanderpool.


Mary is survived by her brother James Peppard of Waverly, NY, grandchildren Amber Morgan and Seth Shaughnessy of Ulster, PA, Nathan Morgan of Athens, PA, Kimberly Wasielewski of Sayre, PA, and Amanda Wasielewski of Sayre, PA, great-grandson Connor Shaughnessy, great-granddaughter Faith Shaughnessy, lifelong friend Mary (Wilbur) Wilson of Waverly, NY, and numerous mieces, nephews, and cousins.
